Taste Notes

1/29/13 - Shawn's 1/2 at his house tastes great. Sweet maltiness, caramel, toffee finish. The toffee hides the 1.030 finish well. - My 1/2 is infected. Dry, hot, but still with good fruit and maltiness. Lactic tingle on the finish indicates this is getting infected. Adding to Collier Mckeel barrel along with 1 cup Old Forester. Prev barrel was Smoked Porter. Also added 1 gallon of Flander's from Woodford barrel to this 5 gallon base. 3/1/13 - Added 2.5lbs fresh chantarelles to Shawn's clean batch. Froze chantarelles first, to make sure they won't infect beer.


Remove two gallons of first runnings and Carmelize it (boil down to about 1 pint and add back to boil). This will give the richer taste that you find in this finebeer. Me ( That shit didn't work, ended up with maybe 6 cups and it was starting to try and burn) Collect 15 gallons of Run-off and boil down to your 10 1/2 gallon target (the other 1/2 gallon will come from the 1/2 gallon starter of yeast slurry that you have made in advance).
